Mark 1:9-15 (NRSV)
9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was
baptized by John in the Jordan.
10 And just as
he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart
and the Spirit descending like a dove on him.
11 And a voice
came from heaven, ‘You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I
am well pleased.’
12 And the Spirit
immediately drove him out into the wilderness.
13 He was in the
wilderness for forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the
wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.
14 Now after John
was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of
15 and saying,
‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near;
repent, and believe in the good news.’
